Round 2 :ch2, sc in each stitch, slip stitch into ch2

repeat for another round.

Leave a long tail so you can attach your basket to your balloon.

Join another length of thread to the opposite side of your basket, and

attach to your balloon – neatly tucking any loose ends up inside.

Now your garland is ready to hang – i used a lengths of yarn threaded through the tops of my balloons so they could hang at a nice angle.

 

Voila!

    Are these US crochet terms?

      It doesn’t look like it. I think they are English.
